摘要Three cohorts (n = 391) of final-year medical students in Hong Kong were evaluated on their preparedness to provide HIV care. Through a self-administered questionnaire, half (53%) were assessed to be better prepared and had a lower perceived risk of infection at work, though unwillingness to manage HIV patients was reported in a minority (4.6%). For a majority of medical students (72.8%), a specially-designed clinic attachment offered the only opportunity to come face-to-face with HIV patients for the first time. With continued improvement in treatment effectiveness, HIV/AIDS is evolving to become a new chronic disease in most societies. Curriculum development in HIV medicine remains a challenge in this HAART era. (C) 2011 The Royal Society for Public Health. Published by Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
